We had a great Team Jackson meeting at the Capital Club yesterday and appreciate the presentations by Michael Rejebian, President of Jackson’s Downtown Neighborhood Association, and Tom Ramsey (La Finestra) and Allison Bell’s (Jaco’s Tacos) presentation of the newly formed Downtown Business Association of Jackson (DBA Jackson). To find out all about them, please visit their Facebook pages.
We were also honored to have Stewart Speed and John Ditto, developers of the Meridian at Fondren detail all the facts regarding this incredibly exciting venture. Scott Spivey, Mississippi Business Journal’s “Under 40 Businessman of the Year”, presented what and how his company, the Mississippi Home Corporation works with the private sector to partner for the purpose of offering work force housing in not only cities across the country, but specifically here in Midtown and Fondren.
Scott discussed the new multi-family development in Fondren, the Oxford, Taylor and Downing Court, the Midtown development West-Millsaps Homes and the downtown development Capitol Art Lofts. All of these projects are possible due to the tax credit programs offered through the Mississippi Home Corporation.
All of these projects are very exciting and keep elevating our growth in our capital city!
